Ben Meyers’ rating: 2.9|5.0 Starsìì

The Shaggy Dog is a good movie for children and can work as an adult/child share watch. While an adult will not want a re-watch, small children may desire to see the film again. The movie features Tim Allen.


The film starts with Shaggy Dog, a 300-year-old bearded collie, living and worshipping in an Indian monastery, then quickly moves to an exciting kidnapping, and transporting of the Shaggy Dog to an American medical research laboratory that hopes to find the secret of its long life in its blood. The shaggy dog escapes with a syringe of its blood, makes its way to an elevator, and leaves the lab. It bites Tim Allen; Tim Allen turns into a shaggy dog and the movie is off and running
